    Walmart is open and some Walmart’s have rifles and shot guns. Not much of a selection but any port in a storm will do. Private sales with in stipulated regulations is still ok for rifles or shotguns. Handguns must by PA law be transferred with a background check and are not available at Walmart.

    I had to turn away patients because the services they wanted were considered elective. I am only permitted to do emergency dentistry. Now If the department of health has its way, I will not be doing that either. No pressure negative rooms. Hint: your not getting that treatment at the hospital either where they have no knowledge of what I do. So other than eating and basic utilities, not much is necessary according to the Gov Wolfe in sheep’s clothing.

    but nothing stops you from buying a rifle from me
    If someone in need knew you.

    You know people are reluctant to sell weapons in unstable times.

    I'd shut down if I had a gun store in PA, but that isn't the point. Point is, I don't like the government restricting weapons purchases in any manner.

    Funny how the government has to tell people what to do.
    I have a bad tooth. Last year, my dentist told me I needed a root canal (cracked a tooth while trying to use my jaws as terminal crimpers). I put it off. I am now realizing he was absolutely correct. I don't need the government to tell me to just deal with it, right now.

    A little clarification here. In PA gun stores are closed but gun stores are not the only place you can find an FFL to do a transfer and backround check. There are a few gun collectors and gunsmiths that have an FFL license. So technically, you could buy a handgun from a private sale and do a transfer with one of these individuals (assuming you know or can find one).

    Here in PA some but not all Walmart’s have 22s, hunting shot guns and a few center fire rifles.

    If it was only gun stores closed, that would be one thing.
    But most stores are closed.

    I hate the idea of the governor closing gun stores using this flimsy excuse. But personally, I really can’t say it affects me in any way. With the crap that has been going on in this country lately, shame on you if you don’t already have what you need. Guns included!
